The Misadventures of a Playground Mother by Christie Barlow

After a year of country living, Rachel Young is finally getting into the swing of things and has managed to navigate the choppy (shark-infested) waters of the playground mafia. Or… so she thought.

After discovering her husband has been having an affair, playground mum Penelope Kensington moves herself and her kids into Rachel’s home. And then there’s new school mum Melanie, whose arrival sends ripples of gossip through the playground. Melanie has a few secrets in her closet, and it seems she’s not the only one…

Hilarious and entertaining, with characters you won’t forget in a hurry, fans of Fiona Gibson, Kerry Fisher and Tracy Bloom will love this book.
